The Kris Bryant Game

Share Button

It was a pretty bad stretch last week for our favorite team, so you like seeing them getting a shot at a bad team.  On a night when Jake Arrieta had even worse command than ever, and the bullpen kept letting the Cincinnati Reds chip away, the Chicago Cubs still Continue reading The Kris Bryant Game

Ivy’s Roundup – The M*A*S*H Unit

Share Button

As we all know (or should, anyway), the baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint.  The Chicago Cubs got out to a spectacular start, but have hit a speed bump given all the injuries that have cropped up, not to mention how HARD it is to sustain a crazy Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup – The M*A*S*H Unit

Could Cubs be Better off Moving Jason Hammel to the Bullpen?

The news that the Cubs sent Adam Warren to Iowa to stretch out for spot starts wasn’t exactly a surprise.  Warren has been going through some struggles, so sending him to a low stress environment to work through those issues while stretching out to serve in a spot starter’s role Continue reading Could Cubs be Better off Moving Jason Hammel to the Bullpen?

Ivy’s Roundup: Fun Weekend

What a series this was. Let me tell you that it is so much fun having a team that wins and even when they lose, it is not that bad because you know they won’t be down for long. Although the players need off days, they are very boring for Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup: Fun Weekend

The Chicago Cubs didn’t follow up Jake Arrieta‘s no-hitter with another no-hitter, but Jon Lester kept the Cincinnati Reds from scoring more than the lone Zack Cozart home run.  In doing so, the Cubs really damaged J.J. Hoover‘s confidence after he already lost his closer’s job, and they also broke Continue reading The Cubs Broke Pitcher Spirits, and Announcers Too

I can’t deny that I was a bit worried about the Cubs coming home and playing in the different elements that Chicago weather usually brings, especially in April. I should have known better. If this team has taught us anything so far is that they won’t give up.  Let’s take Continue reading Ivy’s Roundup: The Juggernaut Awakens

2016 Division Preview: 5th Place Cincinnati Reds

Share Button

In the beginning stages of what appears to be a significant roster overhaul, the Reds enter the 2016 season with more questions than answers.  After trading away Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake last summer to avoid losing them for only a draft pick, they followed suit this winter by dealing ace Continue reading 2016 Division Preview: 5th Place Cincinnati Reds
